You don't need to indicate that Rumsfeld is evil by squishing his eyes and yellowing his teeth. A simple shot of the man's unaltered face would have sufficed.

Always!

That's such an old-fashioned pre-digital view of things!

Amen. Unnecessary at best.

So Newt explained why he was so oily and sweaty... good show.
